Unit 5: story version 1.

The diffident refrigerator.
A  diffident refrigerator is terribly self-conscious about his cold interior, his life gets even harder when his fellow fridges decide to flaunt their icy innards when ever the mood takes them.
Step outline:
ACT1 scene1
On the shop floor of the brand new appliance store  “jerry’s  fridge  freezers”, a lone fridge stands timidly minding his own business. He notices a small ball on the floor but before going over to investigate, he checks to see if anyone else has spotted it. Seeing that the coast is clear he coyly shuffles over to the ball, as he  reaches  to touch it with his foot.... To his surprise  a much more confident refrigerator jumps into the scene full energy  swing open his door and stands proudly barring all its content. Terrified, the shy refrigerator retreats leaving the opened refrigerator.
Scene 2
Upon exiting  the scene our diffident refrigerator cant help but notice  another fridge  weeping uncontrollably,   concerned he decides to try and cheer the fridge up.  He slowly approaches without it noticing and pull out a bouquet of flowers and places  near her. He waits a moment for her to notice but she doesn’t , he then pushes the bunch flowers toward her with the tip of his foot. Upon noticing the bouquet her weeping stops,  incredibly embarrassed with his good deed the diffident fridge stands timidly and waits for the sad refrigerator to respond. Instead of bow of gratitude she simply swing her bottom door open. Shocked and slightly scared, the diffident refrigerator starts to rattle nervously it then turns around and slowly walk out the scene.
Scene 3
Having escaped the recent tribulations of his life, our shy refrigerator takes a moments to sigh deeply. His moment of reflection is short lived. The deliciously inviting smell of a pie creeps into the scene, overcome by the beautiful aroma the fridge looses all control over his body and is physically lifted by (loony tune style scent vapour) the smell and taken to source of the smell.
Scene 4
Our diffident fridge arrives at the source of the smell, which is a huge apple pie he composes him self and checks to see if anyone else has spotted it. He sees that the coast is clear and takes one more big whiff of the pie and ready’s him self to dig in. His blissful moment is sadly interrupted by the  feeling the floor shaking beneath him, it soon becomes clear that a very large object is on the way. Moments later an older and much larger fridge appear to claim the delectable treat as his prize. Both machines stand but the older larger fridge towers over our protagonist casting his shadow. They both stand for a moment the shy fridge is frozen stiff with fear. The much larger machine inhales deeply and exhales steam like a bull before opening his double doors and roaring loudly….
But instead of cowering in fear the diffident refrigerator start to rattle violently, his body start to bulge and contorted as though something is trying to break out his body until finally the door of the fridge burst open unleashing a  dark grotesque  creature shrieking loudly and  baring its tentacles. Frightened the larger fridge runs off abandoning the pie.
